About The Foundation

Established in 2017, the PHWMBA Community Foundation was formed because of the increasing need for a dedicated organization to manage the charitable projects embarked upon by the Perry Hall/White Marsh Business Association.  Over the years, the membership organization PHWMBA has been donating funds to many community projects, local organizations like the Boy Scouts & other charities, and an exclusive scholarship to a college bound graduate.  

With the PHWMBA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION, we are able to enhance our efforts to provide funding to a greater number of deserving projects and provide a greater level of involvement in our neighborhoods.

About our beneficiaries:
The new Eastside Family Emergency SHelter replaces and expands the previous shelter for women and families that served 250 people, and offers three shelter operations, including an enhanced shelter for women and families, serving up to 250 people; a transitional shelter program for women and families, with a capacity of up to 38 people; and a new shelter for men, with a capacity of up to 50 people. The expanded center supports the County’s 10 Year Plan to Prevent and Reduce Homelessness. The shelters are operated and staffed by Community Assistance Network in partnership with Baltimore County.

The new shelter space in the EFRC was designed specifically to meet the needs of those who will be served in the shelters, including child care and child development space, as an outdoor play area and space for workshops and educational activities. The shelter will also allow for enhanced program collaboration with the addition of flexible office space for partnering agencies.
